Finally re-retired a clapped out old Note III and picked up an S7 Edge refurb im having some fun with, but I did get to looking at some wireless earphones.
Now ive never been big on the chunky headphone getups but still think ive been spoiled over the years with stock standard Panasonic (back from the first discman days) and now stock Samsung earbuds which fit properly and give a bloody good sound, leaving cheap plastic buds sounding tinny and utter crap, but i aint down for a $170 trip to JB Hifi for something thats probably gonna get sucked up the hoover. Or magically thrown in the rubbish bin like an entire set of house and car keys... but i digest...
Walked into my damn Woolworths petrol station about an hour ago and walked straight into these hanging off the shelf for $29... (no box sorry i turfed it already!!)
Almost wireless, Fuse BT IE bluetooth earbuds. Recharges via a micro usb port on the side some nice raised and differentiated buttons so you can actually feel what youre pressing without having to look, and just throw over the back of your neck (or front whatever).
Sat there playing with the phone earbuds music etc long enough to pretty much do what would be a train trip into work and im EFFING impressed, damn nice deep even sound, no crackles or rattles anywhere (shit quality third party earphones from the outset you can jangle them like bells as the cables arent set into the bell, and the sound crackles through shitty components) and a bit of fiddling around with the post effects in samsung music had me by the balls. Absolutely cracking clear sound. Tested to my tastes over Dire Straits - One World, Pink Floyd - One Of These Days (if thats not the first track you play to test a new sound system youre nuts) and a couple of others. Also battery life with the new phone plus these buds absolutely shit over the battery life of the older phone just using wired buds. Im still not comfortable not being able to switch out a flat phone battery but thats another story...
Unit does absolutely everything a standard wired set does, make recieve calls push button answer/drop call, voice assistant, you just finally dont have to actually plug the buggers in, (why did you shitbirds put the damn earphone jack in the bottom???) and to be honest, the wires between the buds are far more reassuring that i wont drop one side down a drain or some shit.
Ive been trying to find SOME kind of online link but i cant seem to find anything anywhere thats not an established Australian custom molded safety earplug company for motorsports, including amazon or ebay, have a look in your local servo (thats gas station to you gringos) for a stack of mobile phone bits and pieces and keep an eye out for Fuze earphones. If theyve got the Bluetooth one...
Get that sucker. Might even be worth me wandering down and buying a second set tomorrow i think.
Merry Crimbo Niggerfaggots.
PS apparently i have been googling the wrong brand name, FUSE not FUZE. Apparently its These guys but listing for the product not there. Bought up by an OEM for a bundle somewhere maybe?
